My office has been advised that on March 1, 2023 Hydro Ottawa will be assisting the City Of Ottawa’s Forestry Services Department with the removal of a large dying tree. A power outage is scheduled as a result of this work and will impact residents on the noted street. At Hydro Ottawa, we believe that trees are an integral part of the health and enhancement of our community. While trees and electricity seldom mix, we believe they can be good neighbours. When planned responsibly and properly maintained, power outages are reduced by 40 per cent. Understanding that this is a sensitive time with many residents working from home, we recognize that any construction activities and power outage can be very disruptive. Residents may notice increased construction presence throughout the day, including heavy machinery. If needed, traffic control and lane reductions will be implemented to ensure that roads and sidewalks remain safe for residents and staff. A planned power outage will be required to proceed with this work. All impacted residents will be contacted by phone, email or text and will be further notified by written notice delivered to their door where applicable. Further, notification will be provided if the power outage is to extend beyond the original duration time. In case of adverse weather, the outage may be rescheduled.
Impacted streets: Julianna Rd., Ellesmere Place, Lansdowne Rd., Maple Lane, Hemlock Road and Roxborough Av.
Project date: March 1, 2023
Planned power outage: 9 am to 3 pm
Total customers impacted: 30
